Healthy Kids Day

Healthy Kids Day – Saturday, April 27

Awaken Summer Imagination

Nearly one in three children in the U.S. is overweight, and when summertime hits, kids are often more idle. Research shows that without access to physical activities and enrichment opportunities during the summer, kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast.

To improve the health and well-being of the children in our community, and to help parents learn what their kids need to learn, grow and thrive all summer long, the Lancaster Family YMCA will be hosting Healthy Kids Day® on April 27.

Our Healthy Kids Day events are free and open to anyone in the community. We’ll offer fun family activities, helpful summer camp resources and Safety Around Water classes for children.

****

Before heading to the beaches, lakes or pools this summer, parents need to make sure their kids have the swimming and water safety skills they need!

Our Safety Around Water classes offered on Healthy Kids Days are geared towards children who have not had previous swimming or water safety instruction and cannot jump into the water and exit on their own. These classes are offered free of cost to children through age 12 and parents will receive an assessment of their child’s current skill level and needs. (Advanced registration for these classes is required.)
